USE_LIBTOOL does not work for this port, as is documented,
Makefile.db mentions:

# Do not use GNU_CONFIGURE or USE_LIBTOOL, it adds a --prefix option
# we do not want in CONFIGURE_ARGS, and currently (2003-12-09) breaks
# with its non-standard ${CONFIGURE_SCRIPT}.

The .la file situation isn't at all clear either. The porter's handbook
doesn't mention anything, and a ports@ query a few weeks ago just led to
general shrugging. One person didn't need it, the next one did, so I'll
choose whatever the upstream does to meet applications' expectations.

If you want ports to USE_LIBTOOL, first make sure that GNU_CONFIGURE and
CONFIGURE_SCRIPT can work together.
